It was clear this build was going to be a challenge. At 6’6 tall, finding Russell a stock bike that worked perfectly would not be easy, especially after scheduling a fit and discovering his current bike did not fit him! With only 4 weeks until the event, we were up for the task.
Abraham had used the FiftyOne Assassin at UNBOUND in 2022 and fortunately the XL frame was able to fit Russell’s measurements. A tough frame, the Assassin was built to sustain the abuse that a 200+ mile gravel event would demand. Once it gets on the gravel, it shines like a road bike does on the pavement. It’s stable, comfortable and efficient; qualities that are very hard to find on a stock bike.
